I cant answer your question but for at least AVG free antispyware the last day of support/updates is dec 31 08. Ater this it will cost you.
I dont use the antivirus but it would be worth looking into before you set it up.
Ok. I f AVG and raid are not the issue then i will look elsewhere. I do suspect the dvd writter so possibly the xp install was bad even though it didn't report any errors during the process. There is always the possibility of bad memory and no, i don't mean mine thank you very much...
Having an issue w/AVG 8.0 security bundle on nforce mobo in a raid1 config. But problem not replicable. User says raid degraded right after AVG installation and it also degraded one time since I synced them back up again. Drives seem to test okay, but you now how that goes. Wonder if its not too much overhead for this system.
